Artist's description:

This is an outdoor painting created in the Hunsrück region of Germany. This is the area of higher ground above the Mosel valley – popular for walking, with a lot of agricultural land and forests as well as pretty little villages like this one – Geisfeld which translates as “Goat's Field”!
I set up my easel under a large tree for shade and painted this view of the village in early July. It was quite windy – which was an additional challenge for me – and I have tried to convey this warmth and yet freshness of mid-summer in the painting.

To achieve this aim, I chose a truly summery yellow as the basic colour and gave the painting (except the houses and the sky) a wash of yellow before I started. More freshness is added by the lush greenness of the trees and the colours of the meadow flowers which were growing in the longer grass in the foreground which was not mowed because of its proximity to the tree under which I was standing. With my dog lying beside me sleeping in the shade and comfortably “hidden” in the long grass, I finished “Summer is here!- Geisfeld, Hunsrück” in one go – or “à la prima” as they say among artists!
This painting is one of a series of paintings of the Hunsrück region of Germany. It comes mounted and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
